This brief highlights themes and action steps drawn from a roundtable on Two-Generational Strategies to Improve Immigrant Family and Child Outcomes, hosted by the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, on April 23-24, 2015 in Washington, D.C. The roundtable and this brief come at a critical time, when immigrants and their children are such a significant part of changing American demographics that they are crucial to the nation’s future success: one-quarter of the nation’s young children are children of immigrants. At the same time, important and time-sensitive opportunities exist to influence practice and policy to better serve immigrant families. As Bob Giloth, Vice President of the Center for Community and Economic Opportunity at the Annie E. Casey Foundation said during his welcoming statement, “The time for this roundtable couldn’t be better. It’s really an opportunity moment.” (Author abstract)
